Original?  Hmmm . . . how they have changed:  
  You may wish to try Lexol to your briefcase.   Review this:  Amazon Link   All my best, David
Nice shine.   (What model of car is that in the picture?)
  I see you were selling these size 10b's on eBay for $499 before dropping the price to $219.   Silly question, but if someone were to locate a size 13d . . . how much would they be worth?

  Here is a 16mm film from a VERY long time ago that AE produced:     This film is absolutely amazing as it nears the end.  AE made these shoes, with no nails, and total flexibility.  So flexible that its nearly impossible for me to describe!  You just have to see what I mean.  I don't think they make shoes like this anymore, but what an achievement back in those days.  (Imagine holding your shoes under a faucet of water, and then wringing them out as you would do a wet...
